Braves Outfielder Suffers Season-Ending Injury

For the second season in a row, Alex Anthopoulos and the Atlanta Braves will be looking for some outfield help at the trade deadline, as their ranks have been depleted once again. 

Adam Duvall has suffered a season-ending wrist injury which will require surgery. He originally appeared to jam his wrist Saturday night on the wall in foul territory, chasing a foul ball from Shohei Ohtani. He eventually left the game with what was called a sprained wrist. The injury turned out to be much more serious. 

The 33-year-old Duvall started the season as the Braves' center fielder, but a slow start allowed for the callup of Michael Harris II, who has taken the starting role and run with it.

Duvall had begun to split time with Eddie Rosario in recent weeks, and finishes his 2022 season with a .213 average and a .677 OPS, with 12 HR and 36 RBIs. 

The Braves recalled infielder Mike Ford to take Duvall’s roster spot.
